1.Christmas wreath workshop

 2 hours £40

Fancy making something a bit different this year ? All whilst drinking mulled wine and eating florentines ...

My hand-tied styled creations are great fun to make . Step by step I will show you how to create the shape with a combination of blue pine and eucalyptus then add colour and texture from the delicious collection of seedheads, pine cones, berries and seasonal delights ! 

Come along with friends, or have some "me time" . 
Its time to play, it's Christmas !!

Three Workshop Options to choose from:

-Joy hoop 

 

Using simple stitches and cutting out letters form a huge choice of fabric ,create a little joy decoration ! Ready to hang , hoop is about 13cm in diameter 

Leave your embroidery hoop the natural wood colour or paint it off white to give that scandi look ! 
 

      - A Garland of Stars

Make a garland of stars for Christmas . Length is up to 150cm of eucalyptus but overall length of garland is  up to 2 metres . Cut out felt stars and with a silver/gold thread  make a  simple running stitch to attach to your eucalyptus garland. It's as easy at that ! 

 


 

- A Letter/Initial hoop 

 

Your 3rd option is a gift ! make an initial letter hoop for yourself or as  a Christmas gift.

 Begin with a grey felt letter on a beautiful piece of linen and add cut out pieces of bright felts as petals and I will show you how to add ribbon embroidery  and simple embroidery stitches. Leave it on the hoop or paint the hoop or you can take it off the hoop and pop it on some mount board ! The choice is yours . Hoop measures 13cm across
